Global leaders, including Home Instead’s founder Paul Hogan, are meeting in London today and tomorrow (July 20th & 21st) to tackle key issues around dementia, the most urgent health challenge facing the world today.
Teams from the World Dementia Council (WDC) will discuss challenges in the areas of finance, integrated drug development, open science, big data, research and risk reduction.
As an international charity, the WDC ismade up of 24 senior experts and worldwide leaders drawn from research, academia, industry and NGOs.
Its aim is to ‘create a global environment in which societies, governments, industry, researchers and health and care systems all work together to transform the prospects for people affected by dementia in all its forms.’
Paul is an active member of the Care Global Team which works to improve the quality of life and delivery of high-quality, affordable care and support for people living with dementia, their care partners and their families.
At Home Instead, we believe that access to person-centered care that enables people with dementia to live life to the fullest is extremely important, especially whilst a cure is still being sought.
We’re also proud to support the WDC Global Care statement which details eight key principles of high-quality care and support – you can read it here.
